Up in the North East again for the second time in a few weeks – spent today looking at two possible schools for Ben. The one in the village is quite small and already over subscribed but the headteacher did say that it should be possible for Ben to get a place. The classes only have 20 pupils in them. The other school in the next village was bigger and the council have told us that if Ben gets given a place there they’d send him in a cab each day. there was a marked contrast between the two schools – this one seemed more touchy feely as opposed to the more business like feel in the first one.
Tonight Becky rang Sarah in tears and well basically “came out” to her on the phone. Quite why she didn’t think we’d already sussed that one or would even remotely be bothered by it I really don’t know!
